The Daily Grind: Which in-development MMOs are you hoping to hear more about?

One of the downsides of only following the gaming news cycle is that if there isn’t news, you’re not really paying attention to a game. It’s happened countless times that we initially report on a title, only to see its development or movement fall silent for a lengthy amount of time. That results in every so often remembering that game exists and going, “Oh yeah, when is that coming out again?”

I have several of these, and some days it feels like I’m alone in tracking them. Peria Chronicles is one of those, and I would like to hear a lot more about its western transition. Or what about the announced-and-disappeared Magic: The Gathering MMO from Cryptic? It’s been over a year since we last heard anything on that one.

Are there any titles like this for you? Which in-development MMOs are you hoping to hear more about after a lot of silence and lack of information?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

There are no MMO’s in development currently that I consider worth more than a passing glance. I will continue to check back here to see if something pops up that I have not heard of though. All the ones I read about on here seem like cookie-cutter cashgrab meh titles most of the time.


Ashes of Creation is the only one that interests me. I’m curious to see how their node system will work and I like the theory behind it.


Pantheon-Putting a modern look on the “MMO” I grew up with.
Camelot Unchained-Mark Jacobs. Doing the right thing, taking responsibility for good and bad, and being upfront about the realities and difficulties faced in building CU speaks to me. He has the char of seeing much on that side of the fence done that just wasn’t decent to customers that looks to have formed his current approach, and I appreciate it.


I think it is a pity you don’t cover most of the plenty MMO really. And I feel it is getting even worse, more and more columns and “watch me stream” and less and less news except for the major suspects you play and cover.
What about more about Wurm Online/Unlimited, Maplestory 2, Mortal Online, Life is Feudal, Planeshift, Eternal Online, Salem, Mabinogi, Creativerse, Eldevin? Those are just the ones that fall into my interest of gameplay. And there ARE news, you just don’t report on them.

You do realize there’s a super small staff, right? That almost all of the streams are done by one person, and that they cover a small number of games because that’s all the time they have?

I think it’s unfair to knock MOP for not covering your particular interest in gaming. (Say nothing of the fact that there are articles on Wurm, Life is Feudal, etc — just not as many).

New World and Magic: the Gathering. I have these websites bookmarked I am so keen for them. I also have one called Kingfall on my mind but its a pretty basic little browser mmo.

I’m mostly interested in hearing about non- medieval fantasy MMOs.

No disrespect intended toward those who love them and play them, but I feel as though we have a lot of those already, and that they will be the last genre flavor to disappear from the MMO scene.

So, whenever an MMO is announced that isn’t some form of quasi-medieval fantasy, I’m always interested to hear more.

When I pass on I’ll make sure that my grandchildren keep the good fight fighting and still seek to play the mobile version of the game that got their grandfather into MMOs called FFXI Mobile

Daniel Miller

Well, all three are kinda off teh radar. The most well known of the three, 1 Peria Chronicles. Then Assteelia by Nexon and FFXI mobil by Nexon. These are my three contenders.

These are above AoC, Crowfall, CU, SC, Lost Ark and so many others.

Probably a blizzard take on a Diablo MMO. They’ve been slowly merging Diablo ideas into WoW so fuck it go all out and give use new amazing MMO with all the lessons you’ve learned from WoW to start fresh.
